National Archives Dismissed Rumors Of Missing Obama-Biden Documents Weeks Before Discovery

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) had dismissed claims of mishandled Obama-Biden Administration documents in October of 2022, less than a month before the discovery of classified documents at the Penn Biden Center and then later at Biden’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware.  In October, NARA wrote, “Reports that indicate or imply that those Presidential records were in the possession of the former Presidents or their representatives, after they left office, or that the records were housed in substandard conditions, are false and misleading.”  NARA has not responded to requests asking if Biden’s residence meets the standards for the storage of classified documents.
